Been despondent lately not listening to music and or going to shows for more then a few weeks. Skipped on fairly consistent bands like High On Fire and Acid Mother Temple during recent annual trips through Philly. Label sales have dipped off to next to nothing and I'm basically taking the label ceasing to exist sort of personally. Feels odd coming home from work and not having some details of a new release to work on, or mail orders to fill?? But anyway got back on the horse last night went out to the Khyber to see Weedeater play with Gates of Slumber, Black Tusk and some other band. Weedeater are a truly excellent band though. Maybe under impressive on record, and they don't invent any new new tricks so to speak but god damn are they an impressive band sonically, visually, and as a spectacle. A drunken Khyber crowd didn't hurt either to make the set come off as pretty much a total chaotic mess. Had a great time last night. Just like old times down at the Khyber to see some heavy ass band work through a set, record bootleg style, and I didn't have to talk to anybody that i didn't want to. Just good to see some great music, record, and go home.
